Great Caterer!
Ridgewells and their coordinator, Maggie, did a fantastic job for us. The food was everything we wanted it to be and tasted just as delicious as it did when we did our tasting. The staff on site were extremely professional and very accommodating.
When we did our tasting, Maggie was extremely well prepared to talk with us about all of our options and was always quick to provide some alternatives if we were looking for options. We didn’t even think of having a “signature drink” but Maggie has us try an apple cider for our fall wedding that I never stop getting compliments on. It’s almost six months after our wedding and we still have guests ask us about the recipe!
Our venue was a winery so we had to use our own wine from the winery – Ridgewells didn’t skip a beat and even worked with us to make sure that our rehearsal dinner, while on the same property, had a totally different feel than the wedding (they catered both events).

The catering services from Ridgewells were exceptional! Our experience working with Colleen was an absolute joy. Our venue was at a vineyard and we wanted to do a wine tasting with appetizer pairing during cocktail hour, Colleen perfectly suggested what to pair with what wines and it came out perfectly. For our entree with chose a dual entree of flat iron steak and bronzino, everything was delicious. The food was even better at the wedding than at the tasting. So many people came up to us and told us this was the best food they had had at a wedding, and we agree! Every detail from the drinks passed out after the ceremony to the late night snacks at the end of the night was perfection.

Let me start by saying that you should not avoid Ridgewells thinking they are the most expensive choice in town. I had to say that first because honestly, that's what I had heard and expected. I'm glad I checked with them. It turns out, they were less than everyone else we talked to! I will also say that you should believe everything you've heard about how great Ridgewells' catering is. We had them cater a party held at our house after our wedding reception. This was a tough one for us - some guests were coming from the wedding (i.e., they were already well-fed) and others who probably wanted to eat dinner. Maggie from Ridgewells took this into account along with a not-so-narrow estimate of the number of guests (60-80) and came up with the perfect menu. The hors d'oeuvres and desserts Maggie suggested were scrumptious and were far more creative than what the competition had offered. The amount of food Maggie estimated was perfect. All of the guests got what they wanted and we had a small amount of leftovers, which was a great thing because we were too busy talking with everyone to have time to try everything. The staff from Ridgewells was professional and really knew their stuff. Due to the timing, we couldn't be at the house when Ridgewells arrived. We had a friend let them in and show them a few basic things. They took it from there and set everything up nicely. Even better, there was absolutely nothing for us to clean up after they left. Thanks, Ridgewells. We'll be back! (Or, should I say, you'll be back. ;)

Ridgewells was flawless, as was Talia Moyher, our coordinator, who provided priceless peace of mind. We had a number of roadblocks to overcome,: changing venues, a variety of food allergies and preferences, access and timing limits, and all the other stressful challenges of planning a wedding. Talia met every challenge with a choice of solutions and her calm professionalism. We woke up on the morning of 'The Wedding' knowing that all would be taken care of...and it was! We had a fabulous time in no small thanks to all that Ridgewells did to make it a success. Our guests raved about the food and the service ( thank you also to Diana and Roberto!), which was impeccable. When we had a last minute 'emergency' during hors d'oeuvres, once again, Talia and Ridgewells took care of it. We have only rarely found an organization that we would have such high praise for, but Ridgewells deserves it. They were worth every penny.

There aren't enough words to describe how happy me and my family were with Ridgewells. The food, presentation, staff, decor - Everything was amazing. I owe it ALL to my incredibly talented and PATIENT event designer, Polly Ernst, who guided us through what could have been a very stressful event! Her suggestions were always spot-on (and so creative) and never once did I feel pressured to spend more than my budget or have a traditional, sit-down dinner. I wanted to do something out of the box and Polly made my dream wedding come to life!

I got married at the Decatur House in DC and had a cocktail-style wedding reception instead of a formal dinner. I was nervous about how it would all turn out but Polly encouraged me to go with my vision and she executed it seamlessly! My guests raved about the food and they kept going back for more - mini crabcake sandwiches, risotto, beef short ribs - yum, yum yum!!! And I have to mention the staff- who were so polite, professional and accommodating to all of my guests.

One of my favorite parts of the night was when we returned to our wedding suite. Polly had arranged for the leftovers to be waiting for me and my husband in perfect little boxes... So incredibly thoughtful. We had the best time eating the DELICIOUS leftovers and re-hashing the wedding the next day. THANK YOU THANK YOU Ridgewells and Polly!!!

Ridgewell's did an amazing job, setting the whole venue up beautifully and within 2 hours. Rachel took great initiative, worked with us on an optimal design for the event, and made it happen. All staff were very professional, and completely unobtrusive as they shuttled replenishment food to the buffet table, snapped up dirty dishes & glasses, and then cleaned everything up and moved out when it was over.

Ah, but the food! Best salmon I've ever had, all dishes very yummy and healthy, and everyone raved.

My new husband and I are both foodies (and I'm a chef) so the food was extremely important to us. Ridgewells definitely delivered! We requested hors d'oeuvres from around the world and a dinner that was light Northern California cuisine. It was the best wedding food I've ever tasted (and I'm a hard sell!) and it was much better than you would get from any other caterer. Eileen helped us, and she was great! She saw our vision, and helped us execute it. She was there all night making sure my husband and I were happy as well! Our signature drink was also fantastic...we asked for a fresh peach puree bellini, and she elevated that with a few blueberries in the glass (restrictions in the venue didn't allow us to use certain fruits) and it matched beautifully with the theme of our wedding...elegance and sophistication. They are amazing.

We had Ridgewells cater our daughter's wedding at Woodend. Service was great, all the waitstaff were friendly and accommodating. The dinner was excellent with the Alaskan halibut getting absolute raves. People loved the Chicago mini-hotdog appetizers which were tasty, easy to eat standing, and evoked laughter from the DC guests and sheer joy from the Chicago contingent. My favorite appetizer was the crab cake which definitely maintains the Maryland region's high standards in this local delicacy. Chris was in charge at our event and was a great guy not only to run things but to chat with as well. I highly recommend them!
